Ok, here's your problem:
<divecomputerid model='Shearwater Petrel' deviceid='1a2d46b1' serial='39117da9' firmware='38'/>
<divecomputerid model='Shearwater Petrel 2' deviceid='1a2d46b1' serial='39117da9' firmware='38'/>

In one of the dives the computer is called "Shearwater Petrel" and in
the other one its called "Shearwater Petrel 2". That causes the "merge"
to be done as its two different computers that recorded the same dive.

If i hack up the log file and change so both of them have the same name,
they merge just fine.

I guess that this name came from what model you selected during the
download of the dives.
